Chemical Product Centric Process Design (CPCPD)
The objective of this PhD/PDEng-course is to give the participants a view of chemical product design and the important process design issues related to their development (product-centric process design). The course will highlight how to define the needs of a chemical product; how to identify the candidate chemicals and/or mixtures of chemicals and how to quickly evaluate the important process design issues so that decisions related to product development can be made in the early stages of product development. The objective is also to highlight the currently available methods and tools that can be applied to solve various types of problems associated with product-process design in a systematic and integrated manner. Different case studies will be used as application examples. The ICAS software developed by Computer Aided Process Engineering Center (CAPEC) at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) will be used: http://www.kt.dtu.dk/forskning/kt-consortium/software .
The course is primarily intended for PhD and PDEng students.

Rafiqul Gani is professor of systems design at the Department of Chemical & Biochemical Engineering, The Technical University of Denmark and the former head and co-founder of the Computer Aided Process Engineering Center (CAPEC). His current research interests include development of computer aided methods and tools for modelling, property estimation, process-product synthesis & design, and process-tools integration. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed journal-proceedings articles and delivered over 300 lectures, seminars and plenary/keynote lectures at international conferences, institutions and companies all over the world. Professor Gani is editor-in-chief of the Computers and Chemical Engineering journal, editor for the Elsevier CACE book series and serves in the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Process Systems Engineering and Current Opinion in Chemical Engineering. Professor Gani has been awarded three Doctor Honoris Causa degrees from University Politehnica Bucharest, University of Pannonia and Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca . Professor Gani is the president of the EFCE (European Federation of Chemical Engineering), elected for term 2014-2018; a Fellow of the AIChE and also a Fellow of IChemE. He was the recipient of the AIChE Computers in Chemical Engineering award in 2015 in Salt Lake City. Currently he leads a special project called SPEED (Sustainable Product Process Engineering, Evaluation and Design).
The number of participants is limited. Please bring your own laptop, you need this for the exercises during this course using the ICAS software.
